2018 E-Scooter Findings Report

2018 E-Scooter Findings Report

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) report provides a preliminary analysis of an E-Scooter Pilot Program conducted in Portland, Oregon, from July 2018 through November of the same year. The report includes ridership data, public perception and concerns, areas for improvement, and proposed next steps for implementing e-scooters in Portland.

Key findings

Over 700,000 trips were taken during the four-month pilot period.

The biggest challenges that arose from the pilot were illegal sidewalk riding and incorrect scooter parking.

This pilot is one of the best examples of how a city worked with private companies to further public goals and secure necessary data for thorough analysis.
